DVD writer firmware upgrade possible?
K3b is reporting an error while writing the final housekeeping track data after all the data files have been burned OK to ASUS DRW-1608P2s (pioneer OEM rebadged apparently).
First thing I wanted to ensure is DVD writer has latest firmware.
Downloaded latest from Asus site. Of course it's a DOS exe plus two big data files.
All too big to go on a single floppy as one data file is 1.9Mbytes.
I can't think how to proceed. I don't have Windows or DOS on my Ubuntu box.
Is there an Ubuntu / linux way of updating the DVD writer's firmware?
I googled something about a linux / Ubuntu? firmware-extractor but think this has been written especially for a speedtouch modem.
I have Wine but presumably it's not safe to run a firmware-updating program in Wine.
I don't know how to make a DOS-bootable CD ROM either!
I feel stumped right now!
Can anybody help? Many thanks!
